The program is based in Catholic theology and social teaching. The curriculum’s ethical focus includes training in integrative and holistic care. Based in Benedictine values of educating the whole student, mind, body and spirit, the program gives personalized attention from application to graduation.
“I would like to personally congratulate our graduates for setting the bar high for future classes of nursing students. Dr. Susan Barnes the Dean of the St. Gregory’s Nursing program as well as the faculty and staff have done a tremendous job preparing these students to become beacons of light to their patients and families. These graduates are helping to transform St. Gregory’s from ’Oklahoma’s Best Kept Secret’ to a nationally recognized university,” said President Michael Scaperlanda. “This stellar accomplishment can be credited to the dedication by the students, faculty, and staff to set the gold standard for the newly established program,” responded Dr. Susan Barnes, Dean of Nursing.
Scholarships are available for both the BSN and the RN to BSN program. Applications are being accepted now for both programs. For more information, contact Britany Honsinger in the St. Gregory’s admissions office at (405) 878-5153.
